When Tom wants to go and play by the pier, his mother warns him to stay away from the dragon that lurks there. But when Tom happens upon the dragon, he finds the dragon's mother has warned him to stay away from little boys!
A charming twist on a cautionary tale!
This is an enjoyable, friendly easy to read book about a boy (Tom) whose mother warns him about the dangers of playing with a dragon. Tom is filled with fear after the horrible rhyming tale his mother told him and panics when he is confronted by the dragon at the waterfront.
This is where the story takes a charming twist and the dragon is petrified of Tom, as the dragons mother herself had warned her son of the dangers of playing with little boys. Tom and the dragon become firm friends and then Tom's mother and the Dragon's mother learn to put their differences aside.
This book is great for kids who are scared of monsters, and shows a softer side of an often scary fairytale. My son liked this book as it is quite 'boyish'. Overall a very enjoyable book, would definitely recommend.
Random listing from 'Books'...
The author chronicles the lives of three generations of Chinese men in America.
Woven from memory, myth, and fact - a journey into the hearts and minds of Chinese men in America: the grandfather who slaved in the Sierra Nevadas on the transcontinental railroad; the father who danced down Fifth Avenue, like Fred Astaire, on days off from the laundry; and the son who returned to China to find release from his dead mother's angry spirit. Here is an accomplished storyteller's remarkably beautiful tale of what they endured in a strange new land.
